Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord Lets Us Play as a Child

Medieval Lord simulator Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord from TaleWorlds doesn't always take itself seriously, and the creators are able to deliver some winks at the community. The easter egg recently discovered in the game is a proof of this, as it enables us to play as a child. Suddenly, the game becomes a little easier.


  • You can play as a child in Mount & Blade Bannerlord, just press "R" in the character wizard.
  • This makes the game easier - a large shield covers almost the entire body of our protagonist.

A medieval lord simulator from TaleWorlds, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, conquers the world. The title was released in early access on March 30 and has already become a huge success on Steam, receiving almost 30,000 reviews on the platform. This means that thousands of players are constantly roaming the world of Calradia in search of various secrets. One of them is the possibility to play as a child. To do this, all you have to do is to press the "R" key in the character wizard and our adult character will be turned into a cute baby.

It seems that it was Reddit user JustThiser who first discovered (or at least publicized) the existence of such an easter egg, a rather funny one indeed.

However, playing as an underage citizen of Calradia is not a purely aesthetic decision, as it can make a real difference in the game. While the clothes adapt to the child's appearance, weapons do not. Running with too much weaponry obviously has its element of humour and meme potential, but that's not all. As Game Rant notes, by choosing the right shield we are able to cover practically our entire character, which can be useful during the battle and make the game easier.

Mount & Blade: Bannerlord, despite numerous bugs (which are still being patched by the developers), has won the favor of the players and currently 82% of the reviews for the title are positive.
